Coaching offers you an excellent opportunity to reflect upon a question, decision, or challenge that you face. The coach offers you professional guidance for finding your own standpoint, answers, and solutions by asking you questions, giving you feedback, and engaging your creativity. You will not get external advice but a structured approach that supports you in reflecting upon and developing your authentic perspective.
Possibly topics encompass everything that you deem of importance with respect to your work and role as a postdoc, i.e. career related issues, questions about leadership or conflict resolution. In a coaching session you take the lead by highlighting what you want to work on.
